Clair obscur
References to light are numerous when speaking of the eighteenth century in France. The death of the great Louis XIV, the Sun King, left his people in great mourning. Fortunately, there followed a period in which a system of social engagment was developed, that of the Salon meetings. There, one could discuss knowledge, theorize about music, often in a scientific manner. This was the age of the great musical treatises: L’art de toucher le clavecin, Traité de l’harmonie, to mention those great works of Couperin and Rameau. This period, beter known as the Age of Enlightenment, witnessed the birth of the great French musicians. These composers will be honored in our program Clair obscur. This French expression refers to a dim or soft light, reflecting our image of the music, music of subtle contrasts, combining intimacy and virtuosity. Music of Rameau, Simon, Forqueray, de Visée, Barrière, Couperin, Boismortier, and Francoeur.

Pallade Musica brings together four of Montreal's most promising Early Music performers. Grand Prize winners at the Early Music America Baroque Performance Competition in New York, October 2012, the quartet consists of Tanya LaPerrière, Baroque violon, Elinor Frey, Baroque cello, Esteban La Rotta, theorbo, and Mylène Bélanger, harpsichord. Based on dedicated research and continuous exploration, Pallade Musica’s performances are acclaimed for their expressive and elegant interpretations, earning praise for their “spectacular virtuosity” (Tom Strini) and “tremendous ensemble sense” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel).
